As I said in the previous post in Japan there is a type of "accommodation" called rabu-hoteru or what is the same Love-hotels. Rabu-hoterus are hotels where couples will hang out (to put it finely). In this type of hotels you can do a "rest" or a "stay". In the "rest" or rest the room is usually available for two or three hours and the price is about ¥ 3,000 up depending on the hotel, place, etc. And in the "stay" version it is to spend the night and costs from ¥ 5,000.

Rabu-hoterus of Shibuya

As I said, the rabu-hoterus have everything they need to make an unexpected getaway and leave as if nothing had happened, there are even some that have karaoke and video game console in the room. The funny thing when you enter one is that you usually do not usually see any employee at the reception, and if there is it is covered by a screen so that the people who go will save themselves the shame. There are even some that have separate entrances so that each of the couple leaves through a different door (…)

In which we went, the receptionist told us the room number through a screen and in the room there was a machine where you paid when you left…. As in the parking lots, let's go!

Bathroom of "L'Hotel" of Shibuya, as you can see is quite basic but does not lack a creampie.

Formerly they used to be crazier, with themed and super-kitsch rooms. Although apparently this is changing and I read in a blog that these types of hotels are no longer so fashionable. At least those of Shibuya all looked like normal hotels ... Although in Takasaki we found one with the theme of Tarzan !!! What a laugh Mo and I gave each other when we saw it! 😀
